This City In North Carolina Was One Of The Most Dangerous Places In The Nation In 1979

On November 3, 1979 the Communist Workers Party staged a demonstration parade in downtown Greensboro. The parade was a rally called “Death to the Klan,” in which they hoped to chase the KKK out of town. Their efforts were thought to involve intentions to help workers of color in the local textile manufacturing facilities achieve some equality and improved working conditions.
